Plenty of other places in the world provide these same benefits. NYC, Buenos Aries, Hong Kong, or even LA come to mind. They also all have pretty much the same problems as MIA.

All kinds of seafood in the world that Americans won't eat. You should see some of the things they eat in Asia. But there are 4x as many Chinese as Americans, so there must be something to it.

In MIA Beach, don't take anything to the beach you can't live without. Same thing for stuff you leave in your car, especially if they see you are going to the beach.

Only works if they notice the steering hard over before they tow it. Once they start and find out, they'll probably just cut your boat loose. Who knows where it'll end up.
